To all of my chocolate lovers, this one's for you! This Toasted Hazelnut Hot Cocoa is SO good. Warm milk and cocoa powder with a little dark chocolate and hazelnut cream come together to make this hot cocoa unforgettable. I also added a little nutmeg for good measure.
To top it off, I toasted some hazelnuts in butter, cinnamon, and a pinch of brown sugar. Pour the hot cocoa into your cup, add a little whipped cream with the toasted hazelnut on top. And just - like Wow. Just wow. So good!

Start by roughly chopping up the hazelnuts. Add butter to a large skillet and add the hazelnuts. Add cinnamon, pinch of salt, cinnamon, and a pinch of brown sugar.
Toast in the skillet for about 7-8 minutes over medium low heat. Remove from heat and let the hazelnuts cool for about 3 minutes. Rub them between your hands to remove the skin and set aside.
In a large pot, add in the milk, cocoa powder, dark chocolate chips, sugar, nutmeg, and pinch of salt.
Warm over medium low heat until chocolate chips are melted and mixture begins to bubble slightly - do not bring this to a boil.
Remove from heat and add in the vanilla extract and hazelnut creamer and stir together. Add to a cup, top with whipped cream, and sprinkle toasted hazelnuts on top 🙂

i went out and bought the hazelnut creamer to make this hot cocoa and it was so worth it. the nutty chocolate flavor reminded me of a ferroro rocher. needless to say it was delicious!!
Yes I agree, it does kinda taste like ferroro rocher!
